Bioinformatics: A Computing Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is written by a very experienced author team representing the many areas out of which the new discipline of Bioinformatics is emerging. Their common sense approach and carefully detailed presentation have positioned Bioinformatics: A Computing Perspective on the front lines for defining how the college Bioinformatics course will ultimately be taught. Bioinformatics: A Computing Approach is to make students conversant with key concepts in the biological sciences and knowledgeable about current iconoclastic tools and approaches. It successfully ties interesting computational challenges to relevant biological phenomenon, avoiding the "bioinformatics" vs. "computational" debate that tends to confuse students rather than interest and instruct them.
